Erik Jan Hanussen: Hitler’s Jewish Clairvoyant: An Illustrated Lecture and Screening
Observatory (543 Union St., Brooklyn)
When Pierre van Paassen, the prominent Dutch author and foreign correspondent, wrote the above for McCall’s Redbook Magazine, the “amazing exploits of Erik Jan Hanussen” were still hot international filler. What could have been more titillating than the true and enigmatic story of a Jewish mystic who helped usher in the Third Reich before becoming one of its first victims?
Tonight, join Mel Gordon–author of Erik Jan Hanussen: Hitler’s Jewish Clairvoyant–for an illustrated lecture on the amazing story of Hitler’s Jewish Clairvoyant featuring a special screening of “lost” film footage from Hanussen’s 1919 “Hypnosis: Hanussen’s First Adventure,” a Caligari-like story of sex magic and the occult, and other documentary sources.
